Tips about Best Format for YouTube and Recommend Settings for Your MOV Video

Although YouTube supports many common video formats like MOV, 3GPP, MPEG-4 (.mp4), FLV, AVI, MPEG (.mpg), WMV and WebM, but we still found it won’t recognize MOV or MTS files we uploaded sometime, just like the Samsung officially supports MKV but it’s still a headache to play MKV on Samsung TV. For example, Your MOV video should contain H.264 and AAC audio codec to meet every requirement that YouTube requires.

YouTube has time limit for video, up to 15 minutes. So, you may cut video clip before uploading. Some video size might too big to use due to only 2 GB file is supported by YouTube, to reduce video file size could be a good choice. The last important thing is the aspect ratio, sometimes YouTube will make your video to 16:9 or add vertical black bars (I believe you’ve seen this a lot), so you probably need to change video aspect ratio.

So, based on information mentioned above, one easy way to upload MOV to YouTube or upload MTS to YouTube effortlessly is to convert video into YouTube compatible format, like H.264 MP4. Then, you might search for some tool like “free video to YouTube converter” or “free video converter” on your search engine. And to minimize YouTube video with quality remained would be best.
